about

The Clone Wars have exploded across the galaxy as Republic forces and Separatists struggle to gain the upper hand. But while the Jedi generals work tirelessly to defeat Count Dooku and his rebels, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine is hatching his own dark plans.

The Separatists have launched a sneak attack on Coruscant. Obi-Wan Kenobi, wounded in battle, insists that Anakin Skywalker and his rookie Padawan Ahsoka leave on a risky mission against General Grievous. But when Senator Bail Organa reveals explosive intelligence that could turn the tide of war in the Republic’s favor, the Jedi Master agrees to accompany him to an obscure planet on the Outer Rim to verify the facts. What Obi-Wan and Bail don’t realize is that they’re walking into a deadly trap concocted by Palpatine . . . and that escape may not be an option.

Inspired by the full-length animated feature film Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the brand-new TV series, this thrilling adventure is filled with provocative, never-before-revealed insights into the characters of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Padme, Yoda, Count Dooku, and many other Star Wars favorites.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A prime example of why we have EDITORS! Star Wars fans: Do not waste your time on this book. Read the synopsis online and move onto the next. This is a terrible book. I have read two other books by Karen Miller and quite enjoyed them. This book is a failure. The plot was all over the place and lacked cohesion and sense. I think Miller wrote a story about Obi-Wan and Bail and then realized it was too short and so threw in some extra fluff about Anakin. Or she just wanted the opportunity to write certain characters. Either way it was a mistake. The beginning has no connection to the end. The book needed MAJOR editing. For example; the phrase is 'just desserts' not 'just deserts'. Words, such as miserly, were used incorrectly. And what bugged me the most, and almost stopped me from even finishing the book, was the near constant repetition of the phrase 'pulled a face'. Apparently, no one in the SW Universe has real facial expressions. They all 'pull faces'. Sometimes as many as three times per page. EDIT! Repetition is a sign of a poor writer. What next... The characters were false and unbelievable. Obi-Wan is not British. Ewan MacGregor is not even British. Obi-Wan is a educated and intelligent man who speaks with perfect diction. He is a not a common man from south London that uses words like bloke. Bail Organa is a polite and reserved politician. He would never swear at Padme. Also, the interaction between characters is contrived and does not mesh with what we know of these people already. Even Yoda is written as a crotchety old grump rather than a serene and kind Jedi. Moving right along... general mistakes. When you are hiking through scrub land for thee days and you have water and food rations, even if you are injured, you would not be on the brink of death and walking skeletons by the end of it. You would lose some weight but you would not be emaciated. This book is simply rife with mistakes both epic and minor. Any quality that existed in this story is overshadowed by the severe lack of editing. I'm getting rather peeved that drivel like this left the publishing house and don't even want to waste any more of my time on this review. Don't waste your money.
